Writing a blog you get offers to do collaborations all the time. Mostly I decline because anything here I have to truly believe in and it has to be the right fit. Once in a while though, something really ticks all the boxes for myself and for the blog. California Blooms is one of those companies. Not only am I glad to share about them, but I’m excited too!
California Blooms is a grower of boutique roses on the Central Coast of California. The roses are grown in an eco-friendly environment using hydroponics and methods passed down a family for seven generations. By growing in small amounts, this family has developed some of the finest roses available and also the longest lasting.
Most roses in the market today come from South America. I love that California Blooms are grown in California and by green growing methods; two things that I like to promote on this blog. They offered to send me roses to see for myself how long they last and their quality.
Roses ordered are hand cut, watered overnight, and actually delivered within 24 hours to your door!
Monday morning last week I found these on my doorstep..
The peach roses have the most delicate shade and smell like honeysuckle to me. These look very much like an heirloom rose with their shape and romantic vibe. They are full and lush.
Today, a week later, they look even more beautiful. They opened up, are tall with no drooping at all or murky water. In fact I haven’t even changed the water! I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed roses so long. Some customers have said their bouquets last 3 weeks.
White roses are a favorite of many women and California Blooms is making a donation for every bouquet they sell of 18 white roses to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, a cause dear to their family as well as mine.
My roses were provided by California Blooms, but all opinions are my own as usual on this blog!
